No Condemnation In Christ Jesus

  • Introduction:
          -"There is therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit." (Romans 8:1)
  • Commentary On Romans 8:1
          -To be in Jesus Christ means to be born again. To be born again means to be born spiritually. To be born spiritually means to have a genuine conversion of heart. To experience a genuine conversion of heart means to develop a mental conviction that leads us to act in accordance to what is right. To possess a mental conviction that Jesus is Lord means to let Him transform our lives for the better. To act in accordance to what is right means to stand in accordance to God's divine will. To stand in accordance to God's will means to do what is good and what is right. The people who give themselves to God and place their sinful lusts aside for the sake of others are the ones who walk after the spirit. These people are the ones who do not experience condemnation because they have placed their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. They have truly accepted Him as their Lord and their Savior. On the other hand, the people who walk after the flesh are the ones who will end up suffering eternal condemnation in the flames of hell because they are not faithful to or trusting in God's will. The god of the carnal people is their own bellies.
